Jones, Simon Shabantu Kashama, Kevin Mambo, Tom Mardirosian, Ron McBee, and Condola Rashad.

Lorenzo Pisoni's solo show, Humor Abuse, will now play through April 19. Co-created and directed by Erica Schmidt, it tells the story of Pisoni's upbringing as a member of the Bay Area's famed Pickle Family Circus.
